Silenced by Cancer

Greeting BAS Members. I hope all of you are blessed and creatively doing what you love to do. My last update was in the summer shortly before my mother Marguerite "Sauti" Wills was diagnosed with Ovarian cancer. She was told that it was already at stage 4 which is advanced as it spread to her stomach as well. The following six months consisted of her being admitted to hospitals and rehabs, my family coming together on one accord and me traveling up…

Dark Child..)))))

Born into a world of white values

Landing into a confused Afrikan space

Alone in a crowded world of people

Calling out loud, asking to be heard

Knowin neither good nor bad

Facing Scylla & Charybdis of anarchy

Angry at the skin you was born into

Calling out loud, asking to be heard

Envious to the white empty progress

Insidiously committing hara-kiri

Nothing here, your parents… Continue

Can I trust you with my heart?

Can I bear my soul to you?

Will you mistake my kindness for weakness?

Or will you cherish my love for you.

Is it safe to let you in?

Let you see the person I am.

Can you bear my love and lust;

Are you the one that I can trust?

Let my hands glide over your body

as my lips caress your skin.

Let my tongue invade your privacy

along with my sheepish grin.

Will you ride the crest of loving me

when my… Continue
